If you own one of these homes or buildings, prepare to lose you shirt for the cause of a "safe" environment.
I live in an area that would be totally without any housing or any commercial buildings if older buildings were forbidden to be bought/sold.
I heard a story a few years ago about some California buyers and a local home built circa-1920. They hired an inspector who saw lathe & plaster construction, called it asbestos and killed the sale. It is presently, IIRC, being rented.
The towns around here are full of Victorian homes that once sold for $40k (1970s) and today go for $250k.
In my township, we still don’t have building permits and most renovations are done by the owner.
Hopefully, by the time this crap reaches us and we are forced to sell due to age, the land price will compensate for the building losses. What will they do about resident bats and mice, I wonder? There are legitimate reasons to be concerned about them, but it is impossible to not have them in the country.
Maybe the bureaucracy will just collapse under its own weight by then.
